No evidence? It must be conspiracy
By Mark Coultan Herald Correspondent in New York
November 21, 2005
The twin towers did not fall because aircraft hit them. Demolition explosive charges made them collapse.
If you look at close-up video you see puffs of explosives coming out the sides of the buildings as they topple. An advertisement that makes this allegation has been airing in New York for months. It ends with a voice saying: "Reopen the investigation and address the unanswered questions of 9/11."
If you go to the website www.reopen911.org... you find a series of even more startling claims.
Did a plane actually hit the Pentagon? Photos taken on September 11, 2001, show no cabin, no tail and no engines.
He is offering $US1 million ($1.36 million) to anyone who can prove that explosives were not used in the World Trade Centre.
All explanations, in all parts of this contest must be supported with detailed drawings for all significant events. Particularly, explain and document with drawings and engineering the following video clips:
1) In first video at 0:02 the puffs start below the collapse.
2) At 0:05 several floors blow out at the exact same time.
3) The explosions come in waves
4) The 3rd video shows puffs coming out of floors far below the buckling section.
5) At 0:09 some puffs come out of single windows far below the collapse. Remember that the government claims that the elevator shafts were open chimneys so that would have been the path of least resistance to the blown out windows in the lobbies.
6) At 0:12 at the lower left corner of the building explodes ahead of the collapse.
7) The 7th video, the collapse is not floor by floor as the left side explodes approximately 4 floors ahead of the right side at the corner, not the middle of the floor as the FEMA drawings show.
8) The first north tower video the same.
9) The second North Tower video the demolition "squibs" of dust shooting out several floors below the "collapse".
10) In the last video the fireman describes how was EVERYTHING reduced to dust, everything. Not even standard controlled demolitions do that as building 7 showed. No building collapse has ever done that. Explain and document.
11) The second flash above and our screen saver show a video of pieces of the building flying UP and out over 100 meters with trails of smoke and dust following them (at 6.1 seconds you see the best example); provide details and drawings of how this happened including the trails of smoke and dust. Remember that steel is brittle, it does not flex like Iron. Therefore there is no possibility of it flexing enough to catapult itself upward.
12) This is a new requirement added on November 11, 2005: There are several published observations of molten metal in the basements of all three buildings, WTC 1, 2 and 7. For example
Dr. Keith Eaton toured Ground Zero and stated in The Structural Engineer, "They showed us many fascinating slides [Eaton] continued, ranging from molten metal which was still red hot weeks after the event, to 4-inch thick steel plates sheared and bent in the disaster." (Structural Engineer, September 3, 2002, p. 6; emphasis added.)
The observation of molten metal at Ground Zero was emphasized publicly by Leslie Robertson, the structural engineer responsible for the design of the World Trade Center Towers, who reported that "As of 21 days after the attack, the fires were still burning and molten steel was still running." (Williams, 2001, p. 3; emphasis added.)

even if they prove explosives were used, noone could prove that terrorists were not to blame for planting the explosives

Trust me, if there were explosives, whoever planted them were terrorists, regardless of the language they spoke, their country of origin or the color of their skin.

Why don't these cads prove that explosives were used?

Most likely this is a stunt to get more professors, engineers, etc. involved to get at the truth. Perhaps in the search for proof that explosives weren't used, they'll find out that they were.
